Chinese workers in world largest iPhone factory protest against Covid rules.

The video obtained by Reuters showed hundreds of angry workers at the world's largest iPhone factory shouting and confronting government workers in hazmat suits on a street near the plant, highlighting the social and financial toll of China's COVID curbs, the tightest in the world. Reuters could not independently verify the video.

The rare scenes of open dissent mark an escalation of unrest at the massive factory which has come to symbolise a dangerous build-up in frustration with Beijing’s ultra-harsh COVID policy, as well as inept handling of the situation by Foxconn, the world's largest contract manufacturer.

The trigger for the protests, which began early on Wednesday, appeared to be a plan to delay bonus payments, many of the demonstrators said on livestream feeds.
